Vacuum Press


The BARTH vacuum press TAURUS® is the flagship the vacuum press fleet. It combines flexibility in the Part processing and mass production through a largest possible workspace. Thus, creativity and scope none Set limits. With lengths off 4 m up to special lengths next to the dimensions of the Working tables also the elasticity limits the membrane expands. Bigger, higher and above all longer parts can thus on be glued in a convenient way.



The BARTH TAURUS® vacuum press is the flagship of the vacuum press fleet. It combines flexibility in part processing and mass production with the widest possible work area. So, there is no limit to creativity and fields of application.

Large dimensions

With lengths from 4 meters – up to special lengths – and the two clamping depths of 142 and 182 cm, the elasticity limits of the membrane are expanded in addition to the dimensions of the work table. Larger, higher and above all longer parts can thus be bonded in a comfortable way.

Heavy work

Our TAURUS is particularly suitable for large and heavy workpieces. With the standard speed-up equipment (oil circulation lubricated vacuum pump in connection with our electronic pressure switch REVO II and a vacuum distributor plate) you can achieve a higher pressure (up to 10t/m²) and up to 50% shorter pressing times. Let your creativity run free, expand your range of applications efficiently, saving energy and time.

The industrial grade

As a specialist for innovative press technology, BARTH develops and produces various vacuum presses for every requirement. You want to implement creative ideas in your company and are always developing new products? With the vacuum press TAURUS HP with preheating station & parallel stroke you get the technical equipment that offers you maximum flexibility. This large vacuum press with heating is suitable for any batch size. One-off production or mass production – you can execute every order from your customers quickly and in the best quality with this press. The vacuum press TAURUS HP with preheating station & parallel stroke is one of the new developments in our product range and was presented for the first time in 2019 at LIGNA – the trade fair for wood processing and woodworking.

The concept of the preheating station in the BARTH TAURUS H is based on an electric heating plate. This guarantees even and gentle heating of the materials without the risk of discolorations of the material.


Greatly simplified our working processes

„We are using the BARTH MULTI Press now. We were on the lookout for such a device for a long time and are now very happy that we have this press. This has greatly simplified our working processes. A single worker can glue carcasses, drawers, table boards and a lot more. Otherwise two workers are always needed when working with traditional clamps. Everything which we produce in our workshop is glued in this press.“

Never seen such well packed machinery

„It is a beautiful day in middle on February 2015 in CA and today my BARTH VMP3513 membrane press did arrive. When I saw the semi pull up and the size of the box I was shocked. I purchased some 60” forklift extensions which made the unload very easy. If I did not have the extensions I would not have been able to unload it. The driver was very nice and helped get it down the driveway – I had him use the pallet jack on the end while I used the forklift to steer it to the front of the garage. I then took the press off the crate and moved it to the shop using the forklift and a pallet jack. The crate was built like a tank and was quite hard to take apart. I guess that they justify the price of the crate based upon the number of nails. I had a friend come over tonight to help get it into the shop, I did the main job of getting it out of the crate this morning. I have never seen such well packed machinery than what has come from Barth.“

Approximately 35% quicker

„Working for years with a traditional American-style vacuum bag and pump, we already knew what a vacuum system like this could do for us. With the BARTH VMP4013 we quickly learned there were even more differences compared to our old system. Because of the oil lubricated pump, now we accomplish our jobs approximately 35% quicker and have more pressure. The pressure is approximately 2000 lbs. per square foot. When the press is not in use, the convenient cover protects the rubber membrane and it can be used as a temporary work bench. Casters allow us to move the machine to the work instead of the other way around. All in all, this press has improved our production in many different ways.“

Positive result of a higher productivity

The BARTH VacuucarXL helps our worker with up to three vacuum suction cups to hold the workpiece in place so that our workers have booth hands free for doing their job. The possibility to set up the height of the work plate to the needed height helps our workers to reduce their health problems what has the positive result for us of a higher productivity.

Save a lot of set up time

„The BARTH VP vacuum membrane press replaces in our workshop the traditional vacuum back. With the press we save a lot of set up time before the real gluing/pressing process and in case in case of the natural rubber membrane we do not need to use double boards at regular veneer jobs. With the right glue (regular water based glue) we save here at so much time that the press will be paid back by itself soon. The Barth special membrane is a big difference to each other product that is available on the marked and makes a big difference.“

Energy costs are reduced by 99%

„We use BARTH vacuum membrane presses to veneer and glue molded parts. The BARTH presses have convinced us because due to their proven technology the pressing time is very short and as no heating is necessary, the energy costs are reduced by 99% compared to heated-plate presses. The pressing time for veneer is only 6-8 minutes when standard water-based glue is used.“
